On the eve of his highly anticipated Saturday Night Live performance, Kanye West debuted a new song, “New Slaves,” by projecting a video of his face onto 66 buildings around the world. Seriously. The above picture is from Williamsburg, Brooklyn, but the entire slate of locations are highlighted on a world map over on kanyewest.com.
Inspired by Call of Duty and espresso, “FaZe Clan” serves as our first taste of D-WHY‘s upcoming Young, Loved, Hated & Broke EP.

Created by Lune, a music project fronted by Linnea Martinsson (of “Teenage Crime” fame), the feature will premiere on leavetheworldbehind.com on May 17 at 8:30 PM CET (1:30 PM EST).
On-the-rise Haitian producer Michael Brun has notched yet another tune on Phazing Records with his new remix of Dirty South and Joe Gil’s “Your Heart.” While this progressive gem saw its Australian release back in March on the extended edition of Speed of Life, it’s now available to stream in full and purchase worldwide on Beatport. Can you feel the love?
If you’re going to title a song “Drop The Bomb,” it had better be explosive.
